The ills you describe are not apparent in New York, which spent pounds 138 per person last year, Norway a similar amount and Massachusetts pounds 322. The difference is that all these hugely successful lotteries did not need to lose hundreds of millions of pounds in profits to their operators, because their laws are better framed. Oflot is legally required to maximise the funds to the good causes, yet mistakenly accepts that large profits are the only way of running a successful lottery.
